IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT WE ACCEPT,

 

We are often asked what are AoR's greatest needs:

 

Our greatest need is the funds to pay our staff.

 

We are looking for a panel van or small bus.

We can never have enough googly eyes,

pompoms or pipe cleaners.

There's a very short list of things that we don't accept at Art of Recycle.

 

Televisions

Press Board Furniture

Moldy, Smoky or Smelly Things

Things that can be placed in your recycle bin

Clothing (except costumes)

Large pieces of furniture

Tires and car parts

VHS tapes

Television sets (except flat screens and flat screen monitors)

 

For everything else, we can find a use, or get it to an organization that can use it.

 

 

Art of Recycle accepts almost everything when it comes to donations. Because we are an Art Center rather than a thrift store, stuff that you might normally consider junk could actually be a significant art material.

 

A simple way of judging what is a good item to donate is to determine whether it is re-usable in any form and the best way to do that is to look at the list of items we do not accept.

 

WE DO NOT ACCEPT:

 

  • Trash (food, soiled items)
  • Moldy items
  • Smoky or smelly items
  • Press Board Furniture
  • Televisions
  • Plastics, glass, cardboard and magazines that can go in your recycling bin
  • Clothing (except costumes)
  • Large pieces of furniture
  • Tires and car parts
  • VHS tapes
  • Television sets (except flat screens and flat screen monitors)

 

Everything else we accept.

 

 

 

 

We are open 9am to 6pm Monday through Saturday. Closed Sunday.

 

Donations can be dropped off in the rear of our building. There is a donation drop off alcove next to the double garages. Open the door and place the donations inside the donation room. Small bags of donations can be brought in the front door and carried to the back receiving area where volunteers/staff can process them. There is no limit on how much or how little you may donate.

 

Yes, we do pickups. Please call us or e-mail us to determine if you are within our travel area to arrange a pickup. We can assist with packing items as well as lifting/moving items if you are unable to do so.
